Dont use IE. It's a web browser. Imho it does a lousy ftp client job.
Ever tried to Upload something with IE? Sadly the same goes for OS X
pressing Apple-K and connecting to ftp servers. ( I wonder why's that.
It's so stupid, it follows remote symlinks locally!)

What server are you using? Restrict the Passive ports to a reasonable
number, and open them up in the firewall.

E.g. for vsftpd, there's even a directive to force the pasv IP adress
used. In conjunction with dyndns and simple host lookups you might
resolve the IP issue if your server sits behind a dynamic connection.
See http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,4733382 and adjust for your
needs.
